This years summer barbecue was a truly relaxed affair, so relaxed that the farmer did not seem to know that we were coming when Janet and Ian turned up for the pre-barbecue ride. When he was told that Paul had booked the venue, he remembered. The weather started out quite autumn like but did not degrade into heavy rain. We had a lot of food but everyone seemed to be quite hungry and all the sausages and burgers were wolfed down. No shopper challenge this year. Instead we had a bicycle themed car boot sale and quite a few items changed hands. My teenage sons remarked that the club is getting quite grey, but there is hope. The number of toddler cyclists is growing steadily. The next generation of Bigfooters is in the making. Perhaps shocked by the cancellation of the barbecue in July, the cake competition had only three entries. Bought cakes did not qualify even though some were very good. Matt won the bottle of prosecco with his lemon drizzle.
